Hello, I'm feeling a little confused and upset. Last year my doctor tested my thyroid because whilst I was on holiday my ankles ballooned up in the heat, she said I had an underactive thyroid and I was put on 50mg .. So every two months I've been tested and I was then put up to 75. After the 75 I felt OK, didn't seem to feel anything bad only I had noticed I was quite black around the eyes and a few weeks ago I noticed I was finding it a struggle to get out of bed on a morning. She recently tested it again and this time I asked for the results ... Tsh 13.5 ts4 36.5 so she raised me to 100mg ... I've been taking that dose for five days now. I have no clue what these numbers mean as my doctor wasn't very clear . The weird thing is on the day I had the blood test I felt a dip in my mood. And since then I have been up and down... Weepy ... And just not feeling myself , is this normal for these levels? Yesterday I had such a good day and now I am crying again ... Is that normal too ? To be ok one day and then not the next? I'm worried about it because I'm on antidepressants and I'm scared it's not my thyroid and the antidepressant isn't working or something
